HOW TO STAY FOCUSED AND CREATE MASSIVE SUCCESS

How to stay focused and create success with simple, daily action steps!

The beginning of a business is fun and full of promises. We get super excited, we've never been so motivated! Then, comes the launch phase. Our stuff is SO GOOD, everyone is going to buy and we'll be an exception to the average success rate.

It is time...we launch.

Nothing. Some open rates, a few engagements, mostly from our friends and family who want to encourage us.

CELEBRATE THE RESULTS: IT'S AN ABUNDANCE THING!

CELEBRATE THE RESULTS: IT'S AN ABUNDANCE THING!

Strappy red heels are on.

Shoulders glow with a splash of glitter. 

Laughter swirls through the air just as joyously as music.

Everybody loves a party. The celebration is how we honor the best moments of life. Yet beyond the fun of snagging that pretty dress from our favorite boutique or dancing into the night with our dearest friends at an electrifying event, a pretty dope phenomenon is happening in our heads as we celebrate.   

Hooked on Dope

…dopamine that is. 

TWO WAYS TO BE MORE COACHABLE

TWO WAYS TO BE MORE COACHABLE

It’s funny that I am writing about how to be coachable when I am one of the least coachable people on the planet. And it’s because of those sentences above. I thought, and still sometimes do think, I know best. My way is the right way.

MINDSET AND HOW TO MANAGE IT

MINDSET AND HOW TO MANAGE IT

New Year New You. Do you ever feel mocked by it all? Endless social media posts, videos, classes, groups…. It’s enough to make you scream. Why do you think so many people are desperate to create something new in the first place? Are they dissatisfied with their lives, their bodies, their friends, their activities, and actions? Let’s be honest, if you really started to dig into that question, where does it all stem from?

ME AND THE MIRROR

ME AND THE MIRROR

I have the most beautiful blue-eyed, blond little girl. An airy-fairy one, who gets lost in her world. When I look at her, I see a world of potential. I am a proud mama.
 
I am sure my mother looked at me the same way when I was born. I am convinced she only saw the best and the most beautiful. Even though mama only believed the best I had to offer; I choose to listen to the lies of the world, as well as the lies of the mirror.
 
My story isn’t unique, but I am most certainly one of the lucky ones.
 
When I was 15, I woke up one morning a decided that I am fat, not overweight or unhealthy. FAT! UGLY! GROSS! On that morning I made the conscious decision to starve myself to lose the fatness. I began with an exercise routine and ate as little as possible. In a mere five weeks, I lost 15 kilos. And boy was I proud! I went back to school and felt fabulous. I was thin, and I thought I was prettier.

15 WAYS TO KILL RESISTANCE AND GO FROM HOT MESS TO MEGA SUCCESS

15 WAYS TO KILL RESISTANCE AND GO FROM HOT MESS TO MEGA SUCCESS

What is emotional resistance? Resistance in its simplest form can be those tasks that keep us "busy" that are stopping us from moving forward, getting the things done that we need to do to help us hit a major goal.  

Resistance often looks like anxiety, stress, worry, judgment, fear doubt, self-sabotage, avoidance, escaping, self-criticism, and even anger. 

Emotional resistance comes in many forms, shapes, and sizes. It's important to note too, that it looks different for everyone. It can start to show up as a constant dispute with your spouse or significant other, angry about the weather, family drama, many family obligations that you have to do, a fight with a dear friend, client issues and all of these things added together are signs of resistance. Resistance is the obstacles that are presenting themselves to you to prevent you from hitting that goal, making a life change or following your dreams.

GIRL BOSSING LIKE A BOSS

GIRL BOSSING LIKE A BOSS

A Girl Boss is a leading lady who has a list of goals. A girl boss is determined and capable of achieving everything that she has set her mind to. The girl boss may also be one that's lost her way or needs be encouraged, she may be an entrepreneur or a corporate leader, she might be an employee or even technically unemployed it's truly about what's within.

I am Shaunte Andrea Stewart (Sass) Girl Boss and Leadership Coach for Women. I have a bachelor's and a master in management and leadership. After years of studying leadership in textbooks and years of leading a staff in the corporate world, I felt compelled to help women with the aspects of leadership not found in the books. Aspects such as burnout, difficult employee and manager relationships, lack of confidence and fear of failure. So further up in this paragraph, I claimed to be a Girl Boss and I am. I am one with lots of goals, credentials, and drive. This must mean life is perfect because I must have it all figured out right?? Wrong let's look at my goal list. 

RESISTANCE HAS REARED ITS UGLY HEAD

RESISTANCE HAS REARED ITS UGLY HEAD

Have you been doing everything right but it seems like you can't catch a break?

Are wondering why you aren't hitting your goals but you feel like you're constantly hustling?

If so, I GET IT. 

The last few MONTHS I have been experiencing some major RESISTANCE in my business. 

What is resistance? It's the reaction that our subconscious (our ego) makes to stepping outside of our comfort zone to keep us safe. It's our own way to protect ourselves from the unknown (ie. FEAR). We subconsciously create ROAD BLOCKS to making the necessary changes, hitting our goals, and living a life that we'll adore so that we can avoid having to feel certain emotions or having to work through them. ⇠ #lame

When resistance rears its ugly head, it can come in the form of many different shapes and sizes and is different for each of us. And here's the real ugly truth, resistance is INEVITABLE! Gasp! 😳 Resistance will show up when we are experiencing GROWTH!

HOW TO STAY INSPIRED WHEN YOU'RE READY TO GIVE UP?

HOW TO STAY INSPIRED WHEN YOU'RE READY TO GIVE UP?

Have you recently wanted to just give it all up? Are you stressed, frustrated and wondering when your business or brilliant ideas are going to work?

Yeah, I feel you! I've been there and done that before too. Being an entrepreneur is NOT always easy, but it worth it!

Being a creative entrepreneur in this online market space is both a blessing and a curse. As a creative, we're required to always be in tip-top shape with our creativity. Ideas should just flow from us and they're expected to always be brilliant. Right? Or so it seems anyway...

I want you to know that as a creative and being an online business owner, it can be a challenge and there will be days that you want to just say, 'screw it!'. Trust me, I've totally been there. Multiple times in fact! Which is why I want to share with you ways that I have gotten my groove back, to reignite the fire burning within and hustle like a crazy lady to get back on track. Nothing in this world is ever impossible! You just have to believe that you can achieve it and then take some massive action!
